KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos was left with a bloodied nose when things got rowdy between his red shirts group and the police on Sunday.
The red shirts leader and his supporters had spent most of the day pursuing Ampang MP Zuraida Kamaruddin from PKR and her Bersih supporters throughout her constituency, mocking them as an LGBT group.
The red shirts showed up outside Ampang Point around 3pm to again harass Bersih supporters when Jamal was seen shoving a man in a Bersih shirt before police stepped in.
Shortly after, the red shirts and Jamal ran into the mall to pursue Zuraida again when police again blocked their way.
A heated scuffle between the police and the red shirts ensued, ending with two red shirts being arrested and Jamal bleeding from his nose.
He later claimed that he was punched by one of Zuraida's men although Bersih supporters had left by the time the scuffle broke out.
Jamal went on to vow that his group would be more aggressive toward Bersih due to this attack.
Jamal later lodged a police report of the incident at Ampang Jaya police headquarters.
